    Very highly, the last Ashes series was about the first time I've sat down and watched Test Cricket, it's really what got me into cricket so much.

    The three biggest highlights for me in descending order.

    • World Cup
    • Indo Pak Test Series
    • Ashes

    Maybe being over here has changed my perception slightly, but as far as I am concerned, the Ashes is the best example of a test series, just because of the history and the intensity of it all.

    The Ashes have got better now that England won the last series. You know that Australia wil want to win the urn back, and that England will not want to lose it again. Should be a classic.

    I rate it like any other Test series. If its interesting then I'll tend to watch it more, otherwise I won't watch it so much.

    That said, last years Ashes were absolutely riveting, and definitely held my attention.

    I'm bored already, with the "comments" and why people care about them

    Shane Warne reckons something
    Glenn thinks England are rubbish
    Damien hurt someones feelings
    Monty said something or other
    Ricky might have said something
    Michael Vaughan thinks something

    Lets start the cricket already, which in 2005 was 10/10.. I don't care who wins as long as the cricket is even half as good as it was..

    Normally, 5/10.
    Last one, 10/10.

    Which means I'm pretty much guaranteed to watch every ball of the next one.

    English for me. I was Aussie last time though, which means I'll likely lose again.

    I was backing the English last time, only because it was such an upset and they deserved it but now I am back to supporting the baggy green. I rate them quite highly, based on the last series which is the only one I have seen.

    I'm supporting the Aussies, but I like Flintoff, so I want it to be a close series so he can retain the captaincy.

    Good appraisal of the usual pre-series war of words. Never liked that.
